Bendrovės komercinės paslapties objektas.
Commercial secret has a broad protection under the laws of the Republic of Lithuania. For example: Managing Director, Board members, members from Observers Council are obliged to secure commercial secrets of the company they disclosed during their work time, – states the Corporate Act of the Republic of Lithuania. The Civil code makes prohibition for disclosure or usage of any confidential information, the third party learned or got during negotiations. Disclosure of commercial or technological secrets or transfer of secret information to a rival company deems to be outrage under the Labor code of the Republic of Lithuania. At first glance, it is obvious, that commercial secrets enjoy fully enough protection under the laws. Nevertheless, sometimes it is not enough to have a legal framework for protection of confidential information and to prove the breach of the law. On that cases it is very important to know the exact content of commercial secret and answer the question what is the object of commercial secrets of the company. It means that lawyer shall analyze provisions for the information to be accepted as confidential. On that case “good practice” of what we usually treat as a commercial secret is not the correct way to prove breach of confidential agreement.
